Nobody knows what Juan Ponce de Leon thought was a fountain of youth, but whatever it was it does not give you eternal youth.

To give him his full name Juan Ponce de León y Figueroa.

he grew up at im not tellin haha. If you don't have an answer don't put anything. People really need this answer and this is what you give them. :(

Ponce de Leon explored the region in the Spring when everything was in bloom. He called the peninsula Pascua Florida (Flowery Easter)after the season and the flowering plants.

He wanted land, riches , and fame . More than these however , he searched for a spring and a river that was said to give everlasting youth.

No-one. Ponce de Leon was highly regarded among his peers and by the Spanish Crown. The only ones to understandably resent his efforts were the Calusa indians when he tried to colonize their territory for Spain. They got their own back by shooting him in the thigh with a poisoned arrow. Ponce the Leon had to give up his expedition and died shortly afterwards of the effects of the poison.

They gave Juan Ponce de Leon money to go on the trip to find the new world and to find and claim land for Spain.

Juan Ponce de Leon did not have any point-black failures because he is a beast and was so amazing that he has a long list of accomplishments and strengths but one will never be able to find at least 5 things that ponce de leon failed at. Furthermore you can say that Ponce deLeon failed at being a good man because through his amazing accomplishments he ruined the chances of another man being recognized for anything in their lives (because he did it first). I dare you to research and come up with 5 failures because I myself have been trying to find the answer to this very question for the past 3 hours. all i want to do is sleep. dear jesus i swear ponce de leon will remain a beast and will never be smeared in his good name. i hope you find my answer to be fitting and i assure you that after you spend quality time researching this topic you will agree with me.ps actual failures include (not finding the fountain of youth, being stripped from governor due to political disputes, and never being able to establish a colony in florida) i dare you to find more because i give up on life. thankyou and have a good day.-Anonymous aka a very angry 10th grade girl
